Injury to Bone, Muscle and Joint
Musculo-skeletal injury describes a myriad of injuries to muscles, joints and their supporting structures and physiotherapy has much to offer in the first 48 hours following an injury. Patients most frequently present for physiotherapy with pains, aches or stiffness which interferes with normal life. We help resolve this pain by a combination of manual and exercise therapy.
Back Pain & Sciatica
Most people experience lower back pain at some stage in their lives and in some cases the back strain leads to pressure on a nerve which causes the pain to spread into the buttock and leg. This is known as sciatica. We can identify and treat the cause of your pain and offer advice on preventing it from happening again.

Older people can be more susceptible to trips and falls. We provide exercises to improve balance by strengthening muscles, improving coordination and agility, helping to prevent falls.
